There is no need to do it in MulticoreParam as it will simply fork
your master process and therefore inherit your global setting. I think
the warning you get is due to a bug in RStudio, I hope they can fix it
but it might not be that fast...

It seems to work for 1 function, I'll change the option export global in all the code and rebuild it and see if it works. Do you know if it is necessary also for MulticoreParam? It doesn't seem to be necessary and when I previously set the option to TRUE I always got warning messages for the stats package, that’s way we set it to FALSE.
